Kathy is an Artist, Applied and Finished Artist (Graphic Art), and Sculptor. After starting her career in art at the age of only 16, she has since progressed even further to become a well-established artist and sculptor. Kathy loves to try any medium and has thus sculpted in various types of stone, marble and bronze.
She loves painting in watercolours, oils and acrylics, and has just taken up airbrushing again after many years. Kathy joined the Sunbury Arts Society in 2012 after completing several commissioned pieces of art.
